This is a very nice place to stay and the rooms are unique. We stayed in the one called The Vestry which is all heavy tapestries and embroidered ecclesiastical bedspreads and moody lighting. Not what I expected but very cool. The location is great; it’s...More

This place isn't cheap, but we still were shocked when they showed us our room... it was more like FOUR rooms! Full kitchen, sitting/dinning room, bathroom, bedroom. All done up like it's 1650 or something. Wow! Definitely a cool experience.

Finally, a long-held wish to have dinner at The Witchery has been realised. My friend and I had heard so much about it - and it did not disappoint. The setting is incredible and the restaurant's interior design simply unlike anywhere else I've visited.
I traveled to Edinburgh with my sister and we happened upon this restaurant after sightseeing on the Royal Mile. The restaurant is in a very atmospheric, historical building. Both the service and the dinner were excellent.

Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
